Hi, I'm looking for some advice for four new speakers for a pub. It's one room, L shaped. The longest dimension of the room is 10 meters. For 7 of those 10m length the room is 4.5m wide and for 3 of the 10m length the room is 6m wide. Currently it has 2 x Bose 201 and 2 x Bose 301 (series III). All these have been hooked up to a few different amps over the years, some of which were probably not ideal - the four Bose speakers are over 10 years old and have been well used. I think the tweeters are gone in the 201s by the sound of things and one of the 301s has recently died completely. The current amp is a Yamaha A-S500, just about a year old after the previous amp died. The speakers are hooked up one pair to each of the A and B outputs. Normally all four speakers are run at once, the A-S500 has the impedence switch set to low. Mostly the volume level required is moderate, for music and sports TV, it's not the type of pub that has nightly or even weekly party atmosphere. On several special occasions during the year though the volume required is significant (loud party level sound for ~130 people) for a significant amount of time, 3 - 4 hours. This is probably once per month or less on average throughout the year. I'm guessing mixing two different types of speakers (i.e. 201s & 301s) on the same amp at the same time wasn't a great idea so would like to go for four of the same speakers this time. Also I noticed that the current Bose 301 series V are rated at "4 - 8" ohms and I wonder if someone could recommend something which would be more suitable for running four speakers in A + B, or is the difference between Bose's "4 - 8" ohms and another manufacturer's 8ohms likely to be insignificant? I would consider also going for a second A-S500 and splitting the speakers, one pair to each A-S500 if it's worthwhile/necessary. I'd prefer to not deal with subwoofers (although the A-S500 has a sub out), unless it is a really good idea for this situation. I realise the Bose are not thought of as great value for money speakers, relying more on their brand name in the marketplace than their quality but they do have 8" drivers and I'm not seeing much else out there with drivers that size in the same price range or less (many are 6.5"), is that a significant characteristic for situations when louder, fuller sound is required in this type of setting (especially without a sub)? Would be happy to spend somewhere in the region of £150 - £300 per pair of new speakers. Thanks for any advice you can offer, much appreciated!
